Theft Charges

Vigorous Criminal Defense in Your Theft Case 

Being charged with a theft crime can be a deeply intimidating and scary experience as a guilty verdict can mean years in prison and a tarnished reputation and career.  You don’t have to face theft charges alone.  As former criminal prosecutors having an extraordinarily unique and extensive combined experience level of nearly 30 years as criminal justice system insiders, Meridith and Sam have the experience, skill, and drive to fight for your rights and defend your freedom and reputation in your theft case.   

The High Stakes of Theft Charges 

During their years as criminal prosecutors, Meridith and Sam reviewed and brought countless theft cases, giving them unique and extensive experience in knowing what must be proven in these types of cases and how best to defend their clients on theft charges.  Meridith and Sam will zealously and fearlessly defend clients in the following types of theft charges: 

  • Theft By Unlawful Taking
  • Receiving Stolen Property
  • Theft By Failure to Make Required Disposition
  • Theft By Deception
  • Theft By Deception – Bad Checks
  • Forgery
  • Identity Theft
  • Theft of Services or Labor Rendered
  • Extortion
  • Burglary
  • Robbery 

Depending on the amount of property involved, prosecutors can bring any of the above crimes as felonies, which can involve sentences of over a year in prison and potentially many years based on the crime and property involved.  Further, having a theft crime on your record can disqualify you from many jobs and careers.  

Criminal Defense Attorneys Fighting Your Theft Charge 

Because the stakes for your rights, reputation, freedom and future are so high, you will need a zealous and fearless criminal defense attorney fighting for you.  While it may seem like the power is all in the government’s hands, a good defense attorney will employ a number of strategies in turning the tables on our accusers, and as uniquely and extensively experienced former prosecutors, Meridith and Sam have the necessary knowledge and skill in employing these strategies.  

Meridith and Sam will be at your side throughout police questioning, all hearings, plea negotiations, and on to trial.  They will prevent police from unlawfully obtaining physical evidence and statements from you in violation of your 4th and 5th Amendment rights and prevent any unlawful evidence from being used against you.  

It is important to understand that prosecutors must prove every element of a theft charge beyond a reasonable doubt in order to win a guilty verdict against you, and, for theft crimes, this often involves proving that you had a guilty state of mind, or, in other words, the intent to commit the crime.  Meridith and Sam will make your best arguments on the question of intent and all other elements of the theft crime charged in negotiating and/or litigating in favor of your innocence or for reduced penalties.
